A monument to the famous Russian writer Alexander Vampilov has been set up next to the house in the Kutulik Settlement where he grew up.

      There are monuments to Alexander Vampilov in the Irkutsk Region and in Moscow. Until now there was only the writer’s museum in his native settlement. Last year, in the view of the upcoming jubilee, Kutulik's dwellers decided to rectify the situation at last. They raised funds for the monument and ordered it to the Buryat sculptor Bog Tsyzhipov. Unveiling of the monument started Vampilov’s Days held in the Irkutsk Region.

      This year the festival is dedicated to the 75th anniversary since the playwright’s birth and 40 years since his death. Regional authorities want to establish Vampilov Award to encourage beginning writers and playwrights.
